Idiot Thieves

I love stories of idiots; they always brighten up my day.

Let's say you're dating a girl, and you decide to steal a blank cheque from her mom. Now let's say you forge the signatures and all to try and get some money out of her bank account, what sort of amount would you write down?



Nope. This dude decides to push the limit to see how much he can get:

A man has been accused of attempting to pass a $360 billion check, which he claims was given to him by his girlfriend’s mother to start a record business, Fort Worth police said.

Charles Ray Fuller, 21, of Crowley, was arrested on April 22 on an accusation of forgery, police said.

Police responded to a report of a man attempting to pass the check about 4 p.m. that day at the Chase bank in the 8600 block of South Hulen Street, Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson said.

The personal check was not made out to Mr. Fuller and when the bank contacted the check owner, the woman said she did not write a check for $360 billion.

Mr. Fuller was also accused of unlawful carrying of a weapon and possession of marijuana, Lt. Henderson said. He may also face a theft charge in Crowley.

No, Mr. Fuller, a 360 billion dollar cheque doesn't look or sound suspcious at all. Needless to say that, had the bank actually honored the cheque, our friend Fuller would have automatically become 6 times richer than the richest man on Earth today. Also makes you wonder if he asked for the full amount in cash.
